How do you find all this stuff? top
One of the great thing about owning a store like Sweetheart's Nest is that I get to "shop" all the time. We are always looking for new products as well as new suppliers. We meet with manufactures representatives all the time to review the latest products that are coming out and actually order many of them 2 or 3 seasons in advance. So we are always on top of current styles and trends, which allows you to often be one of the first to see a new product. Or better yet, being the Jones that everybody is trying to keep up with!
Are your prices competitive? top
At Sweetheart's Nest we strive to bring our customers quality products at a fair price. You will have to look long and hard to find a better value than you will find right here. We are able to keep our prices as low as possible by carefully managing our overhead and expenses. We go to great lengths to find unique items that we can offer to our customers at very competitive prices.
What about shipping? top
We try to ship most orders placed Monday - Friday before 12:00 pm Pacific time the same day. And most all others are shipped the next business day. Our shipping rates are straightforward and easy to understand. We never charge packaging or handling fees. Nor do we inflate our prices to hide them. The shipping fees we charge are our exact cost or less from the carrier. It is all part of our policy of trust we strive to build with our customers. We don't play games with our prices so our customers know they can count on getting a fair deal when they shop at Sweetheart's Nest.

There is no harm in asking a personal question, and we recommend using our contact us form to do so. Of course, if the answer is also personal, we might refuse to give an honest response. But try it out; we'd love to make your acquaintance.

Can you explain safety issues concerning using credit cards? top
At Sweetheart's Nest, we take security very seriously, and go to great lengths to protect not only your credit card number, but all of your personal information. Credit card fraud is a concern that happens primarily if the credit card is stolen. Because of the theoretical possibility that the number could be captured during an online shopping transaction, our credit card processing company receives that information through a secure site that is encrypted (Linkpoint). They handle many thousands of online transactions every day. Credit card numbers and expiration dates are not kept on our website server at any time. We never actually recieve your credit card number. It is processed and funded through your own bank and the funds are transferred to our bank without us ever having to handle your Credit card number. We have also retained a security monitoring service that regularly checks our security system for vulnerabilities to whatever the latest scams are and they make recommendations to us before there is ever a problem.
What if an item is not available when I order? top
You will receive notification if there will be a delay in the shipment of your order for any reason. We never automatically substitute anything.
